Great owners, took lots of their time to orient us to the area, food options, hikes, the hostel itself. Great atmosphere, games, books, puzzles. Nice people all around, super environmentally conscious, cheap beer!

What a lovely little hostel, the staff are lovely, the beds are comfy and the desert is right outside the front door. We spent three days hiking in the crater and around Mitzpe Ramon and tbh e advice we got from Lee, the manager, was on point. Highly recommended hostel

Stayed here with a friend for one night while traveling down south. It's a small and cosy hostel next to the crater. The staff was very friendly and helpfull, helping us out on what to see in the area. The hostel itself is pretty basic, breakfast and towels not included, but the ambiance was perfect!

I stayed at the hostel for a total of 5 days this summer. I had gone originally with a friend for a couple days of hiking, and I returned for the weekend and stretched out my stay as long as I could. The first thing I noticed was how quiet and peaceful it was. It is located directly across the...

I stayed 3 nights at the Green Backpackers. It was perfect! Clean, great staff, perfect location to hike the Ramon Crater. The staff will give you all the info about hikes in the area. A very comfy, homey atmosphere. The only thing I would say as a "negative" is that it is very expensive to wash clothes there.

Thanks a lot for your great review and for taking the time to post it. We do really appreciate it and don't take this for granted. We are happy to hear that we managed to help you explore and hike in the Ramon crater and that you enjoyed your time here. I am sorry for the price of the laundry....

Its location is excellent for everything, just in front of the bus stop, 4 min walk to the edge of the crater and excellent view of the sunset. The staff is really helpful and professional they know about the desert and its hike tracks all around. The hostel feels like home its really cozy and its always clean.
